Deer Park Alimony Attorney

Alimony/Spousal Support Information

During divorce negotiations, measures will be taken to ensure that both parties can survive financially, now that they will be on their own, and not sharing the cost of household expenses. If there is a large disparity between the incomes of the two spouses, the spouse who makes more money may be expected to pay alimony, or spousal support. Spousal support, like child support, is a set amount of money that one spouse is expected to pay to the other to help them out with the necessities of life, such as groceries, clothing, bills, and rent or mortgage payments. When negotiating the terms of spousal support it is helpful to retain the services of a Deer Park divorce attorney, who can help you fight for your spousal support needs.

Alimony is usually a temporary circumstance, set in motion until a time when the person receiving support can reasonably be expected to make ends meet without support. In some cases, the support may become a permanent necessity, if, for example, one spouse becomes permanently disabled and cannot work. How long your marriage lasted, the ability of each party to pay support, how much money both parties make, and whether or not someone is disabled all factor in to determining a fair amount of spousal support. However, if, over time, needs have changed, you may need to consider a modification of spousal support, where the court will go over the newest information and determine if the set amount is fair, too high, too low, or altogether unnecessary. In all of these instances, you will want to have an experienced attorney by your side that is committed to fighting for your best interest s, and is aggressively pursuing a resolution that reflects your goals and objectives.
